Do you just follow my threads about?
Do I know what the Syrian public opinion is? No, but I bet they don't want the alternative that is offered by the current opposition.
And I am picking sides on this Issue, I'd rather see a Assad in power with heavy refors, over an Islamist state like other Arab nations that saw an overthrow, or what is most likely now, a faux caliphate and lots of sectarian violence.
And yes I am very removed from the conflict, but everybody is removed from everything that isn't in the UK. Basically, you don't like it that I hate Pious Muslims, which are almost always sunni-salafi fanatics these days, more than I hate whatever the Islamic version of a "Sunday Christian" is. You are saying I shouldn't have an opinion about who should rule Syria, guess that mean you and I shouldn't have an opinion about the US president or the Egyptian one.
Edit: A couple of videos? It looks like every major european nations, America and Australia have had (sometime multiple) pro assad demo's much more than anti-assad ones, what does that tell us about how Syrian Expats feel? What about the hundreds of thousands that have come out in support of Assad (only a few times) in Syria, or the pro assad demo's that seem to crop up every week in Syria.
Don't you ever think about what the oposition is composed of? Sure Assad has done some real bad ****, but it looks like Secular syrians, moderates, even moderate sunni's (I recall that the majority of the Syrian army is sunni), christians, druze, Shi'as, Alawi's and Syrian Jews are rallying behind assad because they know that the opostion is either
Crazy international socialists who will support anything that is against the state.
